Flowers of the Delta

Flora

The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is considered one of the best remaining ecosystems of it’s kind in the United States. It is home to 500 species of plants. The Delta produces a wide variety of flowers that are seldom seen by most people because you can only see them from a boat. The flowers of the Delta change with the seasons, so each day may bring something new and exciting.

“Earth laughs in flowers”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

A few of the most beautiful and interesting flowers in the area are the American Yellow Lotus, American White Waterlily, Spider Lily, Swamp Lily, Blue Flag Iris, Pickerelweed, Rose-mallow, Cardinal flower, Duck-potato, Golden Club. Come see the flowers of the Delta on one of our private Eco-tours.
